About Post Mortem
Welcome to our blog, Post Mortem, by the news obituary writers at The Washington Post -- Adam Bernstein, Matt Schudel, Joe Holley and Patricia Sullivan.
Obituaries have become an increasingly popular feature in the newspaper and online, as well as on Internet discussion groups, in books and magazines and even films. Moreover, they provide insights into culture, politics, science, the arts, business and people's peculiar pursuits. For those of us who write them, obituaries are never morbid because they focus on the endlessly fascinating ways people choose to live their lives.
We believe a good obituary requires solid reporting skills, a sense of history and a dash of good writing.
